LaMarra (Marty) Hudson '12

LaMarra (Marty) Hudson had been a program coordinator at University of Cincinnati’s Arlitt Child and Family Research and Education Center for almost 14 years—but she felt called to do something more. She chose the Mount’s Religious Studies graduate program after researching it online and graduated with a master’s degree in Religious Studies in 2012.

Career Ready from the Mount

In 2013 she accepted a position at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center as the living donor coordinator for the GI and Nephrology Transplant teams. “I will be forever grateful to the Religious Studies department and to the professors, who cared deeply, were always prepared and encouraged me to go deeper and to keep seeking more …” Hudson says. “I left the Mount knowing that I had grown in confidence and had been stretched in ways I did not think possible.”
